iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max to Get New Display? Here’s What the New Report Claims

BOE is expected to manufacture displays for the iPhone 14 and 14 Max.


Apple iPhone 14 leaks have started surfacing more and more on the web as we get closer to the launch timeline. The company is expected to launch four new iPhone models, which will not include a mini variant this year. Alongside the vanilla model, Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 14 Max, 14 Pro and the 14 Pro Max. 

The standard iPhone 14 will sport a 6.1-inch OLED display. Reports claimed that Apple partnered with China’s BOE for supplying the OLED panels of the upcoming iPhone. It was reported in May that BOE had altered the display circuit design, Apple is now said to be re-evaluating the display for its upcoming 2022 iPhone models.

The Elec claims that Apple is re-evaluating the sample BOE displays after it found that the supplier secretly changed the width of thin-film transistors on OLED panels for the iPhone 13 models. Following the debacle, Apple approved the OLED panels again. For the upcoming iPhones, the Cupertino-based tech giant is likely to place a large-scale order.

If BOE gets a green light, it is expected to start manufacturing the display for the iPhone 14 between July and August. BOE is expected to manufacture displays for the non-Pro models. Samsung and LG are said to be the preferred partners for the 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max.

iPhone 14, 14 Max Specifications

The standard iPhone models are not expected to get any major changes this year. While the 14 Max is a new addition, the only changes it is expected to get compared to the 13 mini are the larger display and a bigger battery.

Both models are rumoured to get the same A15 Bionic chip found in the iPhone 13 series. They will also sport a dual-camera setup on the back. There will be a wide notch at the top for Face ID and other sensors. 

Apple is also likely to bump up the RAM to 6GB across all four models this year. The Pro models are rumoured to get some major upgrades, including a new hole-punch and pill-shaped display, a 48MP triple-camera setup and an A16 Bionic chip.
